maniacmac, (one of our Global Moderators) is often seen here on HDBitchin answering a question and giving technical advice which in case you didn't know comes from years of hands-on experience from building Choppers and restoring vintage and classic Harley Davidson motorcycles.

By day he is a Mac Tools Distributor which probably lends to his ability to wrench as he knows how to use what he sells.

Besides the Mac Tool business he runs a motorcycle touring company called AZ Dying To Ride Tours and his motorcycle build company is called Dying To Ride Choppers.

With this thread I would like to make it easy for you to find some of the motorcycle build work that maniacmac has shared with us on the forum. He is a true Craftsman and biker!!
